Good work Morgie.
How much are you planning to lift the rear assembly?

In the interest of conversation, and I don't mean to hijack your build thread Morgan.... But I have a question.

I know this is accepted practice and all, but can someone give me actual data to prove this is a good idea?

As in.... Back to back comparison as to whether 60 foot times, stability or better lights have resulted from this mod?

I have a new pan coming together for the POS in prep for the new bus trans.... I have to narrow the torsion housing, but I'm unsure if I should lift the torsion while I'm there.

My thinking is, it gets the centre of gravity lower to the ground but with standard suspention. With swing axel there is no negitive camber so more tyre on the ground (thats why my rear is so high). Can anyone else add to that???

Today there was more choppy choppy

The reason I brought this up is that some time ago, I remember hearing that Nick Economo (sp) from Vollkomen Art said his "Junka" actually sixty foot better than his blue bug.... Both have narrowed rear suspension, but the Junka didn't have a torsion raise... He just used a trans raise.... Interesting ideas I reckon.

Yeah I know Ben.... Totally agree with you on that one.... Those cars were not exactly the same..... It's just that I'd like to not have to get into cutting up my pan, if there is other ways to do it.... I also totally agree with you Morgan... They look the shiz.... And they do run nice and straight..... Having seen many cars in the US (when I lived there many years ago) done this way, I can see they actually do work... Just wanting to see the options.... I'm wondering if dogleg spring plates and a conventional tranny lift would do the same thing?.... But then I guess the geometry will be different... The spingplate pivot point will be different, which might have an adverse effect....

Then again.... Maybe I'm over thinking all this. :crazy:

As usual Morgs.... You are doing an amazing job.... And Ben is help with the heavy lifting.... :D Look forward to the next installment!
